Annual Hydrant Flushing

The Housatonic Water Works Company will be continuing its annual hydrant flushing program  starting on Wednesday, April 12, 2017. Flushing is scheduled during the day between the hours of 8:00 a.m. and 4:00 p.m. and will continue through April 21 until the entire system has been completed. Hydrant flushing is conducted to remove any accumulated sediment from the water pipes that may impair water quality. The program also provides the opportunity to inspect hydrants to ensure they will operate properly in the event of a fire. During the flushing program you may notice a temporary loss in water pressure and water discoloration. Please run the water first before using for laundry. If you have any questions regarding areas being flushed or problems caused by the flushing program, please contact our office at 413.528.1780 between 8 a.m. and 5 p.m.
